So the sun made another round and we got new bridal trends all over again! Spring 23 Bridal Fashion Week brought us a lot of fresh bridal spring trends. For every bride who is envisioning a fresh start, what can be a better season than spring? If you are looking to make your wedding a spring-inspired affair, check out what's new in the world of wedding dresses and bridal fashion. To give you a sense of what the latest bridal gowns will look like in the coming months and what bridal trends 2023 is going to include we have come up with our favorite designers' brand-new bridal collections that makes them a cut above the rest. The extraordinary bridal designs set the stage on fire after two years of virtual appointments and online runways. From intricate beading and 3D appliqués to bow designs and re-emergence of mini dresses to sleek silhouettes and trendy bridal separates, these latest spring bridal trends are surely going to set everything on fire!


From zoom weddings taking over to some of the most important bridal fashion runways being held virtually, the last two years have changed the dynamics of bridal fashion in every way. Bridal dress designers are steering away from the traditional drama of wedding dress codes and accepting the new reality by bringing in modern wedding dress designs to match intimate elopements and courthouse ceremonies. However maximalist bridal trends are back in style again as brides and designers are getting ready to party once again! From dramatic bridal veils and long trains to rich bridal textiles and regency core details, the wedding industry is also accepting opulence. So you can expect to see statement rhinestones and flowers, unique hemlines, balloon skirts, and fringe and ruffle detailing that nods to the roaring '20s.


Statement florals
This bridal trend 2023 is the best way to get your garden wedding party started! Yes, flowers have always been a part of weddings, but the way flowers are shown now is especially beautiful. Top wedding dress designers showed that florals for spring can be innovative with flower appliqués and big flowers that add a romantic touch to any wedding dress. The 2023 bridal trend is a versatile way to show off the season on your wedding day. Mihca Cho's second collection as Amsale's head designer was inspired by Billie Holiday. He made the beautiful lilac and mint silk tulle night bloom appliqués just 48 hours before the small presentation at the atelier. Halfpenny London's detachable ruffle-flower puff sleeves look just as beautiful on a slip dress as they do on an off-the-shoulder wedding gown. Ines di Santos's collection, which was inspired by travel to faraway places, has floral appliqués that are charming.


Bow details
Bows have always been a part of weddings, but their comeback is a big deal because of how dramatic and versatile they are. Designers are always looking for ways to make their collections stand out, and this season, mini bows were that special touch. Bridal designer icons by Romona Keveza, Honor, and Rosie Assoulin all used this fun design element in their clothes. Modern touches, like bow trains and hair accessories that can be taken off, keep the traditional feel of the looks. So if you want to stay away from blooming bridal hairstyles, you know what to look at. 


Embellished bridal veils
Bridal veils have been a symbol of solemnity for a long time. Now, designers are trying to give this classic piece a new look by adding things like flower appliqués and heart-shaped details. It's time to get better at customizing.


Shades of blue
Looking to put "something blue" in your wedding details? Look no further. Blue is the new pink when it comes to celebrating seasonal spring wedding detail ideas in bridal fashion. Pink wedding dresses have been popular for a long time, but this season, the color blue took the spotlight. For years, wedding dresses came in a wide range of colors, from soft pink to bold black. If you want to add some color to your wedding day outfit, consider the statement blue ball gown bridal dress by Ines di Santo. It will make you the best-dressed Spring bride in 2023. Amsale, Ines Di Santo, and Nadia Manjarrez Studio all took a risk when they made beautiful blue wedding dresses


Gilded glamor
No, we are not talking about the Met Gala theme in 2022 or Bertha Russell's Parisian wardrobe in "The Gilded Age." However, TV's new society queen would be drawn to this level of opulent sequins, crystals, pearls, and bead embellishments. For instance, Charles Dieujuste brings Scorcesa's "Sea Siren" theme, which was inspired by Haiti's beautiful beaches, to life with a white sequin dress with cutouts and a mermaid train that looks like a cloud. Galia Lahav Couture's high-end line is full of shiny paillettes and sequins, and her younger sister Gala's collection is called "Shine," which says it all. So, celebrate the spring season with gilded-inspired bridal fashion!


The rise of balloons skirts
For all the brides looking for royal wedding inspiration, this one's for you. For fall 2022, designers said that high-low skirts would be back, but for spring, they are putting their money on the balloon skirt. This spring bridal style is one of the most dramatic bridal trends for next season because it looks rich and full.


Dramatic cutouts
With geometric side panels, keyhole fronts, midriff peeks, and the mid-back strap, designers find a lot of ways to bring the cut-out bridal trend from the runway to the aisle. Sachin & Babi uses lace inserts and neckline trim that have an Old Hollywood bridal look. We have seen Francesca Miranda's figure-hugging gown with rows and rows of delicately draped silk strips over an embroidered lace underlay. This dress could also be called a dancing dress!


Sheer fabrics
If you have been a fan of pretty patterned bridal dresses, this one has taken the whole game up! Bold bridal designs went to a whole new level when designers chose gowns with fabrics that are completely see-through. Dana Harel, Galia Lahav, and Mira Zwillinger took their barely-there bridal designs to the next level by adding crystal embellishments. So now you don't need to worry about highlighting your dress in the wedding photography session!


Architectural corsets
For spring brides 2023, designers add new shapes and details to corsets, which are also known for being wedding staples. Gustavo Nunez, who used to work for Marchesa and Reem Acra, reimagines a classic column with futuristic exposed boning and a romantic draped bodice for Verdin Bridal, while Andrea Pitter's Pantora Bridal adds flirty feathery wisps to the décolletage to show off its defined lines. It is the perfect detail to complement your dreamy bridal bouquet design


When parties come back into our lives, so do the things that make us ready to dance. Fringe has been a big hit on the spring and fall 2022 runways, and bridal designers have found ways to add the '20s-inspired bridal detail to everything from short dresses to long gowns. 


Asymmetrical wedding dress necklines
We always keep an eye out for necklines as a trend, and the Spring 2023 collections had a few different takes on this design element, one of which was an asymmetrical neckline. Anne Barge, THEIA, and Romona Keveza all had looks in their collections that had this new, trendy shape. If you are looking for bridesmaid dresses for your girl squad, you can go for similar dresses with asymmetrical necklines for a cohesive mismatched bridesmaid look.


Mock Necks
Mock necks were another popular wedding dress neckline on the runway this season. This silhouette, which is based on a royal style, has been worn by Paris Hilton, Ellie Goulding, and Lady Kitty Spencer, and its popularity has grown over the past few years. This style was made by Anne Barge, Ines by Ines Di Santo, and Madeline Gardner Signature, among others, for the Spring 2023 season. 


Eloise from Bridgerton bridal look
In a strange twist, the Bridgerton sibling who is least interested in getting married is the one who shows up most in the latest bridal collections. In Spring 2023, Sophie Canale's hope that Eloise's (Claudia Jessie) cute Spencer jacket will become a trend will come true. Look at Amsale's versatile ivory cropped layer and Rosie Assoulin's crisp button-up pencil skirt-suit. Odylyne the Ceremony, a line of romantic, cool bride dresses by Stephanie White, brings to mind the character's ethereal high necks and billowing sleeves. Eloise might also like the literary references, like Kim Kassas's tribute to Romeo and Juliet with beaded lace and modest necklines and Savannah Miller's tribute to Emily Bront's poem "Spellbound" with puffy sleeves. 


Ruffle details
Even though ruffles are more party-ready than most wedding gowns, they will be walking down the aisle in the spring of 2019. For this trend, designers bet on big ruffled sleeves and tiered ruffles, which they use on everything from simple gowns to romantic dresses. So if you want to style your wedding party in elegant neutrals while making a statement, just add ruffle details to the bridesmaid dresses.


Heirloom separates
In the past few years, we have seen brides ditch traditional ballgowns in favor of more modern styles, and bridal separates are becoming a mainstay of bridalwear. Galvan London, Scorcesa, and Safiyaa, among many other collections, all made two-piece looks for Spring 2023 that a bride could easily wear long after she says "I do."


High and low
The waistlines of wedding dresses change like the stock market! They can be high, low, or even crooked, depending on the fashion trends of the past and present. Rosie Assoulin's first bridal collection is full of fun details like halter necklines, dropped waistlines, and skirts that look like 18th-century panniers. Elizabeth Fillmore and Savannah Miller are going back to the 1990s (and the Regency Era) with empire-waisted slip styles. With its signature embroidered lace ruffles and eyelets, LoveShackFancy's first bridal line has something for everyone! 


Mini wedding dresses
The mini wedding dress has been seen at Bridal Fashion Week on more than one occasion, and we can only hope that designers will keep up with this trend. Some brands, like Peter Langner, LoveShackFancy, and Costarellos, made mini bridal dresses with short hemlines for the bride who doesn't mind showing a little skin on her wedding day.


After-party dress designs
A year with a lot of weddings needs a party dress, or an after-party dress, or an after-after-party dress. Or, let's be honest, dresses, and there are a lot of them. Belgium-based Valentine Avoh adds playful quilting to a sweet tea-length wedding dress that doesn't have any straps. Monique Lhuillier celebrates "la dolce vita" with an off-the-shoulder draped dress and a colorful mini dress with embroidered flowers. Or, try the alternate mini look with the cute crystal-belted romper from David's Bridal.


Colored bridal dresses
No more rules saying that you have to wear white to your wedding. Plus, numbers don't lie: Demand for "color wedding dresses" has gone up by 50% in the past year, according to the online marketplace Love the Sales, and there are a lot of them out there. Amsale's lavender dress has hand-painted night blooms and moonflowers and a bow in the back. A gossamer fingertip-length veil from Francesca Miranda has a rainbow of hand-embroidered flowers. Nadia Manjarrez honors her Mexican heritage with a beautiful blue ballgown with balloon sleeves that can be taken off. The sleeves were inspired by the dahlia, which is the national flower of Mexico.


Heavily detailed ball gowns
Even though mini dresses are all the rage, there is still a need for glamorous ballgowns, especially since big weddings are coming back. Some of the most beautiful bridal ballgowns for brides who want to feel like the belle of the ball were made by Hermione de Paula, Elie Saab, and Monique Lhuillier.


Detachable capes
We love options for brides that can be taken off and changed. This spring of 2023, designers added removable capes to the many other removable parts of bridal gowns such as removable skirts, bows, and sleeves. Bridal capes not only make a bride look better, but they also add a lot of drama. We love how Monique Lhuillier takes this trend and adds drama in a soft and romantic way with a tulle cape. 


Bridal co-ords
Bridal co-ords are like a ready-to-wear matching set that is effortless and hot. For Spring 2023, though, designers have given them new, edgy twists: Reem Acra grows 3D flowers on a billowing chapel-length cloak and corset gown, and Verdin charms with delicate leaf embroidery on an airy capelet and A-line dress. 


Big floral patterns
Floral patterns aren't new in bridalwear, but the Spring 2023 collections put a new spin on this old favorite by making the embroidery designs bigger. This is even better if you are looking for statement-making floral bridesmaid dresses! Designers like Elie Saab, Reem Acra, and Lela Rose were able to make this traditional style look more modern.


Intricate draping and pleating
It looks like designers spent the last two lockdown years working hard in their studios to come up with new ways to pleat and drape fabrics. This season, Danielle Frankel's different ways of pleating look like they came from the future. Peter Langner weaves strips of ruched tulle to make a bodice with ruffles, and Scorcesa keeps with the theme by making a bralette in the shape of a seashell.


Bridal couture tailoring
Classics that have been tailored, like suits and button-up shirts, can be worn for weddings in different ways, depending on your style and mood. Sheila Frank's collection for all sizes is inspired by the shapes of Victorian menswear. Rowley Hesselballe London pays homage to "The Queen's Gambit" with a confident ivory pantsuit and bandeau top, while Meghan Markle's favorite brand, Safiyaa, has a range of ultra-chic suits with intricate beading, cuts, and draping that will make you cry tears of joy. Plus, Rosie Assoulin makes wedding cargo that you can wear again and again.


The extraordinary bridal designs have something for every bride. From statement bridal pieces from iconic bridal fashion houses like Elie Saab, Amsale, Monique Lhuillier, and Sareh Nouri to colorful wedding gowns and modern separates from Scorcesa, Safiyaa, and Nadia Manjarrez Studio, we have seen a blend of traditional and contemporary bridal designs. These wedding dress designs are timeless, whether you are a modern bride or a classic one.
